WASHINGTON D.C., DC — D.C.’s 911 system is once again under scrutiny after District leaders say a break in protocol led to a delay in getting an ambulance to a man suffering from a stroke. That man later died.
WUSA9 has been following the issues at the Office of Unified Communications closely. Just last week, an auditor’s report said critical problems have not been addressed there. Still, Mayor Bowser continues to defend OUC and its interim Director Karima Holmes. The Mayor confirmed on Wednesday, that she nominated Holmes for the permanent position. Holmes left OCU last year when the agency was facing similar problems.
